Ycoden Daute Isora DO Temperature, Rainfall and Sunshine

This western tip of Tenerife island was defined as a DO in 1994, revitalising a very old and traditional wine-making area of steeply terraced small vineyards. In recognition of that it takes its name from early Guanche kingdoms and dominions.

Today it is an area of small but vigorous wineries with new ideas, and it is known especially for its excellent white wines. But this area produces quality barrel-matured red wines from the native Listan Negro and Tintilla grape varieties. Interestingly, wines were traditionally fermented in chestnut barrels, but stainless-steel barrels are now used almost everywhere.
